70% Dark Chocolate - Polochic - Guatemala
These award winning beans come from deep within the Polochic valley in Guatemala.
Farmers live throughout 35 communities across the Polochic Valley, which neighbors a forest reserve called La Reserva de Biosfera Sierra de las Minas, and the association is partially responsible for protecting this 2,400 square km reserve which varies between 150 and 3,000 meters in altitude. The Polochic Valley is said to be one of the hottest micro-climates in Guatemala, which, paired with the relatively small size of the cacao seeds (which might be a unique trait of the clones growing in this region), helps produce a high fermentation rate in the cacao and unique flavor profile.
